What are the best running shoes to wear?

Whether you’re a new runner on the block or a seasoned veteran, it is undoubtedly wise to invest in a pair of proper running shoes that provide good support and cushioning. Don’t expect that the battered pair that you used to play badminton in at school will suffice! It’s best to go to a specialist running shop to make your first purchase as the type of shoe that you require will depend on your biomechanics. A good specialist running shop will analyse your feet and your gait and should be able to advise you further. Remember that your feet will expand slightly as you run so you’ll need to accommodate this when considering sizing.
